ST. JAMES, Mo – A Phelps County father and son won a $50,000 prize on a “$50,000 Crossword Extra” Scratchers ticket.
After scratching his ticket the father exclaimed, ” I think I’ve got 11 words!”
Though his wife initially thought he only uncovered 10 words, his son checked the ticket using the Missouri Lottery mobile app.
“It said ‘$50,000 winner!’ he recollected. “Dad didn’t even want to touch the ticket after that.”
They plan on using a portion of the prize money to take the family to Disney.
Crossword Extra is a $3 scratchers game that started in July 2021.
The game has over $11 million in unclaimed prizes ranging from $3 to $50,000. The $50,000 prize has been won eight times, but only claimed once.
